    has anyone experience the same problem with their blog... and is there a way to make it so authors can post videos. to me this is just bizarre, but when my blog authors inserts the video html and posts it no video shows up. i also created a test author account and experience the same problem.
    i'm using the fancy theme downloaded from wordpress
    and my blog is
    thanks if you have any ideas at all

    Author's don't have the permissions to embed flash. Read the above thread for the reasons why. If you feel confident with your authors, I would look into the Role Managers Plugin, which lets you change that setting.
